However, the current u-turn in price valuation could be due to a recent statement by the central bank regulatory authority, the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision.

The regulator’s advice about crypto-asset exposures would make it very expensive for banks to hold digital currencies.

This in turn could hinder a wider market acceptance of crypto-assets such as bitcoin.

One proposal made by the regulatory body is to attach a 1,250 percent risk to a bank’s exposure to bitcoins and certain other cryptos such as Ethereum.
